so i redid the wiring on the magnum with braided cord 16 gauge. got about 2/3rds of the way done. started to connect the headlight switch. got a little spark but being new to 12v wiring i didnt pay much attention. connected it and the light on the switch came on even though the switch was off. weird i thought. so i connected it with the lights lit up. turned the switch off and POOF! every single wire started to smoke and melt. i grabbed my lether welding glove and yanked the whole harness off.
wasted 10-15$ worth of electrical stuff. scared the shit out of me.
anyway can you tell what went wrong by the pic?
lol. so i connected the power to the ground on the switch. i did bad physics in my head. i looked at the guide on the closest switch and assumed to mirror it on the other one. not thinking that they both faced the same way. anyway it meleted plastic to a couple parts of the tube frame but they arent visable.
